Looking for something fun and different to do on a night out in Ottawa? Consider attending Nature Nocturne; one of the city’s favourite monthly events!
For one night each month, Ottawa’s Canadian Museum of Nature comes alive from 8 p.m. to midnight, transforming itself into an exciting venue where you can stimulate your curiosity and move your body. Enjoy music, mingling, and engaging activities in unique spaces. Grab a drink and some delicious snacks, and dance the night away under a giant jellyfish in the beautifully lit Queens’ Lantern.
Each Nature Nocturne offers a different theme. Whether you attend as a couple or as a group of friends, this is an Ottawa event you won’t want to miss!
We recommend that you purchase your Nature Nocturne tickets in advance, as this event tends to sell out quickly.
